Sixth Form Transportation

Students attending Sixth Form will need to apply and in most cases pay for a bus pass. This includes those students that have previously received a free pass. Lunesdale Learning Trust work in close partnership with Westmorland & Furness Council to make their Post 16 Spare Capacity Scheme available to our students living in Cumbria, please see below for further information on the scheme. If you would like to apply for a pass, please complete the form by clicking here and make the relevant payment on MCAS. Payment options can be found under transport on MCAS.

Sixth Form Driving

There are number of reasons why we ask students and parents to consider the decision to drive to school very carefully indeed. The most important issue is one of safety; that is the safety of all our young people in and around school and on the way to and from school. We have a Sixth Form Driving policy that reflects these concerns and requires responsible driving at all times. A secondary concern is the pressure on parking space in Kirkby Lonsdale. A third concern is the environmental impact of additional car use.

However, we do understand that in the rural setting some students will find car use more economical and certainly more convenient. For this reason, we do allow Sixth Form students to drive to school, but ask that they discuss this matter with Mr Domingues beforehand.  They then need to fill in the application form and then parents and student should read the Driving to School letter which they will receive via email after the application has been approved.
